Toyota currently relies heavily on two utility vehicles in the Indian market,- Fortuner SUV and Innova Crysta MPV. But to expand its business further in the highly competitive UV segment, the automaker is relying on the new Hilux pickup truck, which has been selling around the world for more than 50 years.

Pickups are usually a bit longer than SUVs and in terms of appearance and performance, they are very different compared to their SUV counterparts. The case is the same for Toyota Hilux when it is compared with the Toyota Fortuner.

Here is a comparison between Toyota Hilux and Toyota Fortuner.

Both the Toyota upmarket utility vehicles are meant for buyers who seek premiumness, comfort and high performance. However, there is distinctiveness between these two vehicles.
